Comments: This is lifted from the Westwood One recording sessions, but, if memory serves me right, it has a couple of tunes not featured in the radio broadcast.

The sound quality on this is superb, though the labelling is off. "Brain Damage" is, in fact, "Breathe." The kicker is that:

Radio Waves In The Flesh Mother Final Cut Powers That Be

are credited as: "Written & Arranged by Waters/Wright (?!?) Gilmour/Mason," while all other tunes are credited solely as Waters compositions. -RUDI

This disc is really really really good. Sounds like a direct clone of a Westwood 1 master. I don't think you could get much better without patching it up (like the Wall '90 disc! ;-) )

Track listing fixes: 9. Get Your Filthy Hands Off My Desert Southampton Docks (Damn, I really like the Final Cut!) 12. Breathe 13. Brain Damage / Eclispe 14. Another Brick in the Wall (Part I) The Happiest Days of Our Lives Another Brick in the Wall (Part II) -DAve

TOR points out that the tour had not started by May 22nd of 1987 and the actual date of the performance was 7th November 1987.

This is an excellent quality roio. Listening via headphones reveals very slight tape hiss, but this is well suppressed and completely unobtrusive. Overall, there are no complaints about the quality at all and this roio is thoroughly recommended. -PHIL

An excellent quality recording, probably taken from the soundboard. The performance, too, is excellent. -ECM
